October 21-24, 2023-Last of the warm Fall rides and a weekly FOOD Run

Been a busy couple of days here so I will just catch up with the rides! 

 Oct. 21 we got in a longer ride as the Fall temps have been excellent for the last 2 weeks! My Mom had some A-Fib heart problems so she ended up the hospital for couple of days, bummer! She's back home in Security a Village area southeast of Colorado Springs. There are NO bike trails out there so we put in a 30 mile day on mostly bike lanes and back roads to get down to see her, she's doing much better!! :) We did stop at a new cafe called: Roll Up in Security to check them out, good food but a bit pricey for our meager budget!! 

Got back home as the sun was slowly sinking in the western sky! It was great, as always to see Mom and I shot the video above for my Brother Chuck in IL. 

On the 23rd. we headed out just for a ride in the last days of the lovely Fall weather here in So. Colorado. It's going to get quite chilly and WINDY by Friday this upcoming week! :(

We rode up to Vincent St. Bridge, then took the Vincent Access Road to the Nevada St. trail/bike lane down to Panera Bread for Iced Tea and our Brown Bag Lunch! Then rode south along the Pikes Peak Greenway over to Monument Valley Park and Stanley Lake, just north of downtown Colorado Springs.

Headed back to the storage unit and tucked away the trikes, a really NICE day to RIDE!!

Oct. 24, The clouds and wind got stronger in the afternoon so we just decided to do our Weekly Food Run to the Walmart Neighborhood Market Place to get food and supplies. Hooked up the cargo trailer to my trike, did the shopping and took the food back to the apartment. Food put away, the wind was getting much stronger so we decided NOT to ride and headed for the storage unit. No riding on the 25th. Dental appointment, YUCK!! Hopefully get in a short ride on Thursday as Friday, Saturday and Sunday the temps drop down to the 40F's with lots of WIND so it will be "Ride the indoor exercise bike time", RATS! LOL, just can't keep Winter away much longer! BJ
